Criminal Background Checks and Drug Testing

Emory medical students undergo Criminal Background Checks (CBCs) before matriculation as facilitated by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Acceptance to Emory School of Medicine is contingent upon the authorization of the CBC, as well as the release of its findings to Emory.

Entering Medical Student Health and Immunization Requirements

For the protection of the health of our students and because of the risks of exposure to infectious diseases to which medical students are subjected in the course of clinical work, certain tests and immunizations are required of all students prior to matriculation.

Student Agreements and Release

All medical students must enter into an agreement with Emory University and the Emory School of Medicine to follow all policies and regulations and to abide by the standards of the Conduct Code and Honor Code. All policies and regulations included in these agreements can be found in the Student Handbook.

Technical Requirements for Matriculation*

For successful completion of the course of study for the Doctor of Medicine degree at Emory University, students must have certain technical and intellectual skills.
